Described in the publication, Jain et al. (2013), "CO2 emissions from land‐use change affected more by nitrogen cycle, than by the choice of land‐cover data", Global Change Biology, 19, 2893-2906. The data provides annual net land-atmosphere carbon flux and net flux of carbon to the atmosphere due to land-use and land-use change. The data span 1800-2010 and are aggregated for nine regions of the globe. The estimates are calculated using a land-surface model, with interactive carbon and nitrogen dynamics, and three historical reconstructions of land-cover change and land-use conversions as described in Meiyappan and Jain (2012). Data is currently available in xls format through the Carbon Dioxide Information Analysis Center (CDIAC).
